Neal Enterprises began making the Proto-Plate number plate in late 1979 or early 1980. The company is still owned and run by the same person and these number plates were produced from the original mold. It is a flat plate that is injection molded.
The decal covers the face of the plate and is reproduced by Porkchop BMX with permission of Neal Enterprises. The plate clearly states copyright 2017 and has holes cut for the lower zip ties - both details that differentiates it from an original Protoplate.
Plate color: BROWN (NOTE: There are stress marks near the upper rows of holes - this is from the manufacturing process and is not a defect. If you think this will bother you, please do not purchase.)
Decal color: BROWN & GOLD printed on white vinyl
Size: 8 1/2" tall not including the "ears" and 10" tall overall. 17 1/4 wide overall from ear to ear. Down tube zip tie holes are spaced 8 7/8" center to center.
4 "natural" color zip ties are included. These are a very close match to the ones that came with the Proto-Plates originally.
MADE IN THE USA
